What is it?

My foxglove leaves are a bit furrier, I'd go for comfrey, but hard to tell at this stage.

I agree with Lyn, they look fine, but if you feel it looks gappy then plant some annuals. That's what I do too.

Last year I started a thread about gardens we visited. Some people sent some lovely photos  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/gardens-we-have-visited-2013/80843.html  so I thought I would start another for this year.

We went to the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park the end of April. It was pouring, they lent us umbrellas. No one else was in the garden except the ducks!

We loved it last year, think I've said that already somewhere.

HELLO FORKERS!

That wall and bed look great Chicky. OH needs extra kisses!

My OH has arrived in Stansted, he rang.

Didn't do middle bed, sorted greenhouse instead. Filled the 3 coldframes with babies so that I can plant the tomatoes in the GH. Watered them all and the pots around the house, having fed the roses in the pots for the second time. Tied up some climbing roses. Probably should have put that on the GW thread. Shall go out later and put the lids on the coldframes.

Didn't the neighbours invite you Tracey OL?

Glad you had a good time Panda.

Only just got back from church and lunch. On the way back I saw a plant stall in a village square so I stopped. There were some French ladies selling plants, mostly herbs, and a young man, who turned out to be English selling lots of plants and lots of different sorts of foxgloves, perennial and biennial. So, of course, I bought a boxful. Variegated lemon thyme, a Blue Ensign pulmonaria (which I've wanted for some time), several different foxgloves, a pink hesperis, a purple phlox, acillea 'the Pearl' and a polemonium (mine died, but he said here it's best not in the sun, and deer don't eat it). 

OH has left to see his family in England.

Must get out and weed that middle bed.

Daphne?

Daphne is early flowering and very scented. This is like the one I have.

Gosh John, thanks for reminding me. I must take something to the bring and share lunch after church tomorrow.

Shadey shrubs for a planter

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 18:51

I have a small rhododendron, yakushimamun, in a pot in full shade. But it is only in flower in May, although it is evergreen.
